The Question Club
1. I'm having a disagreement with a friend, so I'm looking for more opinions. :P
Right now I'm 5'6", and we're arguing over how tall I'll be when I finish growing. He says, AT MOST, 5'9", but I disagree, though I don't have a set number.
My dad is 5'8", but my mom is 5'3". I just turned 15 a week ago, and I've only had one actual growth spurt, and that was before 6th grade (my 10th summer). Since then, I've just grown slowly and steadily. I eat pretty well, but I usually get a maximum of 6 hours of sleep on weeknights, and anywhere from 8-10 on weekends. EDIT: Oh, I'm male. x)
How much more growth is likely? (And yes, I know I should sleep more)
2. I get slightly frustrated at my history class because of the way we skip back and forth in time periods. It makes sense, of course, because the chapters are arranged by topic, but I hate going from (for example) Constitutionalism in the 17th century back to the Scientific Revolution of the 15th and 16th centuries. It just throws me off, because I like to compare things that are happening at around the same time.
Anyways, I'm planning on making a timeline of the centuries, color coded. I'll be using black for chapters(/eras), purple for different rulers, red for wars, and blue for other people. I'm planning on finding a green pen for other random events, but I can't think of any other colors that I would need. Am I missing a large chunk of information that I could put under another color, or does Eras, Reigns, Wars, People, and Events cover it pretty well?
Thanks for the advice. :D
